What people say

I have been working with Natalie for the last 3 years. She has partnered with us as our HR Guru and Talent Consultant. She mentors me on daily people matters and HR strategy. She takes care of our annual HR reporting and sources quality talent that are the right fit for our business. She is reliable, competent and provides a master class professional service. I have peace of mind that she is a call away and always provides me with hands-on practical solutions to implement. Natalie is empathetic in her approach, at the same time raises our awareness to potential risk which we may face with our talent strategy. She is a pleasure to deal with and would highly recommend her services.

Virtual HR Retainer

Working with Natalie has been an absolute great experience, she possesses the utmost professionalism in her conduct and approaches the recruitment process with flexibility and transparency. Natalie simplifies the recruitment process which makes for an enjoyable experience. Thank you Nat!

We have retained the services of Hands-on Human resources to gain easy access to a competent HR Professional. We consult when faced with incidents requiring disciplinary actions and labour related processes, ensuring we comply with fair legal process, and take appropriate action. They submit our Skills development and Employment Equity compliance reports and guiding us in navigating the unchartered waters in response to COVID-19. They review our policies and procedures and provide us with HR related content as and when required. Their services have proved valuable and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of HR services.

Hands-on Human Resources sourced and placed star nursing talent for a hard to fill vacancy without breaking the bank. They provide a professional, reliable, and affordable recruitment, from the presentation of the candidates’ CV to the personal follow ups and sourcing the right fit for the role. I would highly recommend their Talent matchmaking service.

As a start-up business we required employment contracts to be drafted and a standard code of conduct. Hands-on Human Resources developed a comprehensive professional employee handbook defining work practices, principles, company values aligned with current South African Labour laws tailored to our industry and operational requirements as well as drafting an Employee Handbook. They went the extra mile with providing guidance on HR best practice to ensure legal compliance. Thank you for the easily accessible, reliable, and professional service provided.

We required posters and infographics in response to COVID-19 to clarify FAQ’s and illustrate the safety protocols to our staff and visitors in our factory environment. Hands-on HR designed digital, compliant, and printable infographics. They provided us with exactly what we were looking for, they look great! Thank you.

When Hands-on Human Resources arrived in the building I felt instant relief. Our business was in the middle of a Re-structure and re-capitalisation. Our HR Head was moving to New Zealand. A significant challenge for all. Natalie got stuck in immediately! She successfully sourced and placed a competent incumbent to Head up our HR function. She assessed and re-wrote policy and provided a warm human approach during very trying times. She is a competent, highly skilled and reliable HR expert with a warm, professional approach. She effectively executed on all our HR needs, ensuring a smooth transition for all. I will always remain immensely grateful to Natalie for her calm and efficiency and the way she simply got the job done. I highly recommend her services.

Talent Sourcing & HR Consulting

During the re-organisation of our business units it was apparent that we needed to evaluate our current job functions to assess the talent in our business before investing in new hires. Natalie rolled out a comprehensive job evaluation exercise, providing standardised graded role profiles providing us with insight and clarity to make cost effective decisions. The project was handled effectively and professionally. Natalie has a wealth of HR experience and provides a reliable service. You are in good hands. Thank you Natalie.
